When I first raced Open in a 40 the 46 were awesome. They would pass us like we were sitting still. One of the best boats peter has built.

I have been in some big water and wished we were riding in one of 46s..The 46 is a beast!!!
I second that going to block island in GERRYS 46 TURBINE is awesome in big water. its fun when you see the vee hulls slowing down cause of the big ocean water. one trip I was in both AND GOT THE CHIT BEAT OUT OF ME ON THE VEE HULL. I should of stayed one more day on the island but the wife was pissy. this yr she will be right next to me getting banged in our new ride hahah or maybe send her with gerry and the girls in the skater and that way I can hang it out to dry, we have a saying in new england faster is smoother as long as you don't get out of rhythm . but the 46 skater is a beast compared to the other ones I have been in. TURBINES help to.

I raced Stock class in a 28 Skater in 93,94 and couldn't believe the way the 46 looked and ran! Got a chance to race with Bob Morgan in 97,98,99 in a two engine and then the 4 engine 46 Skater. Really cool life time experience looking back. The 46 won't be the fastest poker run boat on small water but throw some real 3 to 4s out there and its a real fast boat!!!!

154 is a great speed for a 46, but what about the 388 going 171mph on pump gas 1250's, really impressive

I don't think there is a such thing as a slow Skater.
